It is Friday and National Donut Day. My greatest pleasure in my childhood was to go with my Mother to downtown Knoxville and get a donut. Doesn’t sound like much these days but we lived in the country, it was West Knoxville, but in those days very much in the country. Trips to town were infrequent and even then I did not always get a treat, so maybe that is why it was such a big deal to me. Another treat was to go to the dime store and get a small bag of peanuts. They had a machine that kept them hot and they were oh so tasty. I still love donuts and peanuts to this day. It is hard for me to turn them down when they are in the house.
